mod_reqtimeout only touches http connections and has also special 
handling to avoid touching CONNECT requests. But since websocket 
connections start their live as http, I see that there may be a 

Is there a way for mod_reqtimeout to determine that a connection has 
been upgraded, i.e. that it is no longer http? If no, maybe we should 
extend the conn_rec to provide that information. Alternatively, 
mod_reqtimeout could offer an API to allow modules to disable it. But
